18 April 2020

STATEMENT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTHAMPTON: "It is with profound regret that due to the current restriction imposed in view of the Coronavirus crisis we have had to cancel our Sunset Stride on 18th April 2020. Whilst everyone at the University of Northampton Events faculty is very disappointed with this news we are keenly aware that the work of Cynthia Spencer Hospice goes on and in the coming weeks will now become even more vital for the community it serves. We appreciate that these are difficult times for everyone, but if you are able, we would please ask that you consider gifting the Hospice your entrance fee and monies raised online so far, so that the Hospice can continue to be there for us."

On Your Marks, Get Set..GLOW!!

Join us to light the night in aid of Cynthia Spencer Hospice in this event brought to you by a group of students from The University of Northampton.

The countdown is on! Sunset Stride 2020 is back for its third year running and will take place on Saturday 18th April. The 12km walk will take place at Brixworth Country Park as we set off around the reservoir, watching the sun set as we go. When the sun goes down... the stars come out as our glow in dark theme illuminates the trail and a wave of light passes across the finish line.

With a wonderful local DJ talent for entertainment and Clubbercise leading the warm up, we can't wait to see all of our supporters ready to Glow! We advise you to bring a torch with you on the day.

By signing up and pledging to raise at least £25, you will be helping make a huge difference to all those supported at Cynthia Spencer Hospice who have life limiting illnesses and their families. This year we have some glowing rewards for those who smash £50, £75 and £100 targets :)

Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy the walk!
